  • oholmes Jan 27, 2009

    I have the same problem. I have changed all batteries, and I get no image on my LCD monitor when I try to take a picture. The screen is black with settings around the bottom and side. I press the function key and the settings disappear, but I cannot get the image to appear.

    When I turn on my camara (powershot A300) on, the screen is black. All batteries have been replaced, in case that was the problem, but no change, as a result, cannot take pictures......I can still review precious pics taken before this problem occured.

    I can see everything BUT the screen where it shows me the picture. I can see the menu, settings, etc. I can delete a picture when i have taken it but i can not actually see the picture, everything is black, i have changed the batteries several times and have gone through all the settings and checked to make sure everything was on the right setting, but nothing seems to happen.

How do u download pic 2 wprofile on web site


Hi!

Just what exactly are you trying to do. Your picture to be uploaded and become the profile picture in a website profile page (like Facebook or yahoo or gmail)?

First of all you need to save the picture as jpeg format (recommended format for image and picture.
You will need to shorten the image size of the picture. Because most of picture uploader needs at utmost 150 kb size of the image file. (In case your picture exceeds the allowable size.. there is a free software that you can use to cut the image size of your picture (like Image Resizer program)

Just post back if you still have some question.

thank you for using Fixya
